Cooper’s First Home Photo Shoot

For years you have seen pictures Cooper takes around his neighborhood. But have you wondered what kind of photos Cooper would take inĀ your own backyard?

Tony was the lucky winner of Cooper’s first home photo shoot, the prize of last month’s special Cooper raffle to benefit PAWS. Cooper enjoyed meeting Tony and photographing every nook and cranny of his yard. Watch the video!

While exploring the yard, Cooper met one of Tony’s five cats, Rowen. Rowen gets to enjoy the great (sort of) outdoors in his cat enclosure – sort of like a dog run – which protects him from other animals and traffic. A great idea for humans concerned about the safety of their pets! Rowen and Cooper spent a lot of time staring at each other, and vocalized their greetings with many forms of meows, hisses and growls. Our interpretation was Cooper: “Why are you in a dog run?” And Rowen: “You’re the one on a leash, buddy.”

It was a fun afternoon, and a treat for Cooper to be able to shoot photos in a new location! This month Cooper raised $127 for PAWS, the Progressive Animal Welfare Society.

Speaking of paws, Cooper is currently licking his own, while reading his photo book. If you haven’t seen his book yet, check it out!
